This summer I worked on FOSSASIA's Open Event Android Project. Our goal was to create a generalized events App and publish it on play store which we successfully accomplished, Open Event Android can be found on playstore with the name of EventYay Attendee.

I was already contributing to Open Event Droidgen when I started working on a new project called Open Event Android, which is an app designed to show all events created by organizers and also helps users to buy tickets for the event. Users are able to view all event related details, starting from the location to the duration. Users are also able to favorite events and view them in a separate section.

Eventyay Attendee App provides features for users like:-

  • All events by the organizers can be viewed
  • Functionality to filter out events by date, time, location and event name is present.
  • Users can buy tickets and register as attendees for any event from the App.
  • All important event details such as location, date and timing of the event can be viewed.
  • Users will be able to view all the tickets bought for an event.
  • Easy check-in using QR code for Ticket
  • Users can view similar events in the App
  • Users have also the privilege to favorite events in the App
